ceilings and fiscal cliff, it is obvious we have a weak leader. what is next? we've got four more years. host: thank you for the call. military cutbacks are the focus of this story -- mike is joining us from utica, n.y., on the republican line. caller: they are all cowards and washington. this sequester is never going to happen. the country needs tough medicine. the cowards are led by the cowered in chief, who is dying in side -- inside. he is like a wife spending out there -- they have wives up there instead of men. this is like mediscare. what happened when our bond rating went down? the same thing -- a goal they stop spending, nothing will happen, except they will save the country. -- if they stop spending, nothing will happen, except they will save the country. when they kick the can, they should be ashamed of themselves. it is a shame that they cannot stop the spending. the republicans have obama on the hook. he is the one -- he is dying inside because he is a spender. for him, this is the worst week of his life. they do not even see it. it is ridiculous. they are going to kick the
for the fiscal cliff impasse, the debt ceiling battles in the various continuing resolutions that have kept the government running despite no budget. this time not even a compliant and complicit media can bail him out. the sequester unquestionably his idea and he publicly broken his own promise. there would be no sequester, at least to this point. the president told america during a presidential debate governor mitt romney on october 22 last year the sequester "will not happen." we will see. a new report says military is behind an overwhelming number of cyber attacks against american targets. that report traces of those attacks to a single building in shanghai, headquarters of a unit of the liberation army. hackers have stolen massive amounts of valuable information of all kinds from at least 115 american corporations over the course of the past seven years. companies involved in everything from finance energy to infrastructure. chinese government officials have dismissed that report is groundless, pretty much the response to all similar charges brought the years. the white house is not com
